Guitar and Drum Lessons

Joseph's lessons:

Guitar, Drums

Guitar Lessons

I focus primarily on acoustic and rhythm guitar. I also like to throw in music theory whenever appropriate. It's all about covering the basics (chords, strumming, picking, scales, etc.) and then starting to put those basics to work learning songs you want to learn!

Drums Lessons

I create lessons specific to each student's goals and interests. I work hard to create a plan that progresses you forward while keeping things interesting and fun! Whether honing skills on the drumset or concentrating on rudiments, theory, and technique, I will get you to that next level.

Overview

I have been playing music for over 20 years. I have been a successful part of Rock Bands, Jazz Bands, Blues Bands, Marching Bands, etc. So, whatever style of music you are interested in or wanting to learn, I can help!

I have spent the past 6+ years honing my skills for Training, Coaching, and Developing. So, I can promise two things. You will get results and you will have FUN!

I will design your lessons around you and your goals......not mine!


*** Lesson Details ***
Ultimately, my goal is to make sure you enjoy yourself and want to keep coming back. In that process I will make sure you get results.

I am laid back and very patient. Two qualities I feel are necessary to be successful in this field.

I design my curriculum for each individual. This is because everyone has their own goals, there own level of ability, and their own needs as far as how to get there.

Locations:
1) Rehearsal Studio is my rehearsal studio. I have a full drumset, PA, guitars, and amps available at this location.

2) Apartment is my apartment in Hawthorne. Students are welcome to come here but we have limited options for instrumentation here. Practice Pads, hand drums, and acoustic guitars are the only options at this location.

*** Studio Equipment ***
5 piece Yamaha Drumset with Zildjian Cymbals. PA system. Amps, Guitars, and Keyboards.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have acoustic guitars, a practice pad, and a djembe. I expect my students to have their own drumsticks and, ideally, their own guitar and practice pad or drumset.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock/contemporary & marching band style percussion/drums. I also specialize in folk style guitar and bass.

Joe is a great teacher and a great guy! He really helped me to quickly improve my playing. I love that he listens to what my interests are and teaches me what I want to learn. He even helped me with my singing!

Drums Lessons

I found Joe through a friend and had always wanted to take up drums. Since I didn't have a kit I found that he provides a kit in his studio which was a big plus. However the biggest plus was how patient he was and how fun he made be lessons. His weekly assignments were great in the sense that I was able to improve on a daily basis until I saw him for my weekly lesson. I also appreciated the fact that he was very flexible with a last minute time change. He was very understanding and able to accommodate my new time. He's very professional looking and I must say he's one of the best drummers I've ever heard. I'm lucky I was able to get him at such a good rate!
